Characters in Mafia will be one of the greatest features
of the game, altogether there will be 50 different characters
but the main story line will be focused on 5 main characters.
You can be forgiven if you think the characters look similar
to the actors from "Goodfellas" one of the best
Mafia pics ever made, it's obvious that this film had
an impact on the modellers. Anyway lets meet the leading
is the main characters of the game and is the role played
by yourself in the single player game. Tommy is a cab
driver who due to unforseen circumstances ends up working
for the Mob. A nice guy who had a hard childhood he ends
up doing all kinds of things for the mob that would make
most of us cringe, however he does have a conscience which
from time to time leads him in the opposite direction.
is a tough Detective, a typical representative of a detective
of American tough school who has a bit of a reputation
as a lout, he dislikes everyone. Tommy is narrating his
life story to Norman and it must be said that it isn't
at all easy for him. which is probably how the game will
be put together.
if you look closely at Don you will notice he is the spitting
image of Paul Cicero
from Goodfellas, (played by Paul Sorvino) nice work guys.
He also plays the boss of a family, just as Paulie did
in Goodfellas. He is a friendly guy who manages to keep
his cool in most situations. It's business first friendship
later, again this is exactly the same as paulie was in
this guy is the spitting image of Tommy DeVito (played
by Joe Pesci) from Goodfellas, his character is almost
identical too. He is Tom's gang-leader. He is a smallish
chap, full of energy. He is a choleric and sometimes behaves
quite unpredictably. However, when he takes liking to
somebody, he is the truest friend there can be and he
can always be relied on - if he isn't busy causing you
some trouble, that is. They came to like each other immediately,
they are good friends, and work together quite often.
Sam is the spitting image of the character Jimmy Conway
(played by Robert De Nero) from Goodfellas, again his
character is almost identical. Another colleague of Tom's.
He is a large and pleasant chap. He comes across as being
a kindly sort of a man, with friendly smile. He is big,
but in spite of his size, he is timid and little clumsy.
He doesn't talk much. He often works with Tom and Pal,
and they are good friends.
